If you have a love of words, a keen eye for detail, a problem-solving approach to editing, and a commitment to accuracy, we want to hear from you! Boston University's Editorial department is looking for an experienced, flexible Copy Editor/Writer with uncompromising standards and outstanding attention to detail who will be responsible for reviewing and proofreading three strategically important University publications. As a member of the editorial team, the Copy Editor/Writer will need to shift priorities to accommodate urgent deadlines while maintaining unfailing accuracy. The Copy Editor/Writer role demands an awareness of larger-scope issues of sense, logic, factual accuracy, and adherence to University style guidelines while maintaining steady focus on smaller-scope issues like grammar, consistency, and layout discrepancies. At all stages of the production process, the Copy Editor/Writer collaborates with a creative team of editors and writers on high-visibility, top-priority projects at Boston University.
Boston University is no small operation. With over 33,000 undergraduate and graduate students from more than 140 countries, 10,000 faculty and staff, 16 schools and colleges, and 250 fields of study, our two campuses are always humming.
